When Chris Price, aged just 26 years, found out he had terminal cancer and just six months to live, he decided to dedicate the time he had left to his true love and make her dreams come true.
The first thing he did was propose to Ceri, his 29 year old girlfriend, they married in a beautiful church with her four children as the guests of honor, a truly magical day.
Chris was sadly diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in April 2012.
Shortly after he was given the all clear, but tragically the cancer returned in April 2013 and he was told it was terminal.
With six months to live Chris promised himself he’d spend it making his girlfriend Ceri’s dreams come true, starting by proposing and then marrying her.
After the wedding, Chris took his new wife and her four children Halle, nine, and triplets Evan, Morgan and Georgia, six, to Disneyland Paris.
Few weeks after returning from Paris he whisked Ceri off to New York for a weekend of sightseeing and shopping. He splashed out on an expensive pair of Louboutin shoes and a $1,500 Mulberry handbag that she had always wanted.
The loving husband then booked a trip to Las Vegas for her birthday, but sadly he ran out of time… Chris died in Ceri’s arms last month and his funeral was held in the very same church where the pair had married just six months earlier.
Ceri had this to say after her husband Chris passed away in January 2014:
“If my love could have saved him, he would have lived forever. We packed so much into the short time we had together. His illnessmade him live completely in the moment and he taught me to do the same.
He died in my arms and I felt his last breath. My heart is broken losing him and I still spray his Aramis aftershave and wear his clothes to feel close to him. He loved me and took me on with four children as if they were his own. They loved him so much too.
I have no regrets – we accepted what was going to happen and we savoured every single second we had together. At his funeral we played his favourite song Robin S – Show Me Love. That’s all he ever did was show everyone he met love. I miss him every moment of every day.”
They filled those few months with more love than many people experience all their lives.
